When it comes to writing, I don’t mind. If anything the first time I learn about my characters and the setting. The second time I work out the plot holes and problems. By the time I write the scene the third time, I’m excited. I’ve improved everything at least three-fold.
Lately, I wrote a scene and thought, Wow! I don’t need to rewrite that. But, I did. And, I improved it.
Sure, I’d love to be the writer that can crank out the stories at a rate of 10,000 perfect words a week, but after a bit of thought, I’d rather be the writer that “Wows with every Tale Told!”, even if it takes me four tries.
